Partnership with media vital: NSO


NATIONAL Statistician Roko Koloma says partnering with the media is important in terms of disseminating information to the people.
Koloma said it was important to inform the public about the role of the NSO and the use of the data it collects.
He said the NSO reform would look at strengthening laws to partner with various organisations for the purpose of data collection.
“Information is power. The reform would see changes in the leadership culture in NSO that has been too flexible for many years.
“We would grow NSO into a professional organisation and one that’s compatible,” he said.
Koloma highlighted the roadmap for the NSO in 2018 and beyond.
He challenged government agencies and institutions collecting various statistics to seek their assistance so they could do proper statistics for them.
